Frauenkirche, or Church of Our Lady, is a Lutheran church in the old part of Dresden, built in Baroque style in the 18th century. During the Second World War, it was completely destroyed, but in 2005, this magnificent architectural monument has been restored and now presents all its beauty, impressing with the elegance and grace of its décor.
Dresden is famous for its porcelain and Frauenkirche resembles a bizarre product of this fragile and precious material. The white walls of the church have dark blotches: these are the stones of the old ruined building, reminiscent of the tragic pages of history. However, the festive and solemn appearance of the temple causes admiration and joy. Observation deck at the dome offers a thrilling experience by presenting a view on the magic Dresden.
